lying is easier than telling the truth. And, many times the truth is hard to swallow.

3. Would you rather know the truth than not and what are the topics you would rather not know and need to know
4. Is lying serving you only and not serving the receiver?
5. Understand your motivation for not telling the truth

Verbal cues when someone is lying:
Why do we get so upset when our politicians or loved ones lie to us?
